Senator Rand Paul Blasts Outgoing AG Sessions. Calls On New AG To ‘Go After The Deep State’ & Protect POTUS Trump

Senator Rand Paul remains one of the few truly principled members of Congress. You may not always agree with his positions but you cannot deny he makes them clear and he sticks by them regardless of how the ever-changing winds of public opinion might blow. This week he calls on the new Attorney General of the United States to be willing to fight the dangerously growing powers of the Deep State, including its ongoing war with the Trump White House.

Exclusive – Rand Paul: Next A.G. Must Defend Individual Liberty from Power-Hungry Deep State

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) offered his thoughts on who should replace former Attorney General Jeff Sessions during an interview with Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor Amanda House.
“I think your cabinet needs to have people in it who agree with you,” Paul said when asked if he was happy about Sessions’ departure. “I think for a long time Jeff Sessions hasn’t really been working for what the president would like him to do.”

“I also think that there are some big reforms that we need of our justice and our intelligence agencies, and I think justice can be part of that,” Paul added. “What they’ve done to the president has been very unfair with going after his campaign, trying to entrap people.”

Paul then referenced the deep state, as he believes they are the ones targeting members of the Trump Administration.

“This whole thing [of going after Trump’s campaign], I think, was set up by people in the intelligence community. Some call it the deep state. Yes, these are people that are there forever and they care more about power and their power than they do about anybody’s individual rights.”

“What I’ve been encouraging the president is that he needs somebody to be attorney general who actually recognizes what they did to President Trump was wrong,” Paul explained.

Sessions has a steady past of opposing criminal justice reform. During his time as a United States senator, Sessions fought against the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act. As attorney general, Sessions was unmoveable when it came to low-level drug offense reform, for which he was often criticized.


 

NEW YORK TIMES Caught Once Again Pushing Anti-Trump Fake News Propaganda

Remember, The New York Times is owned by open borders leftist, Carlos Slim, a Mexican billionaire who made a fortune selling government-subsidized ‘Obama phones’ to poor Americans throughout much of the Obama presidency. So, with that knowledge in hand, check out this compare contrast of two New York Times headlines calling President Trump a liar for speaking out against an impending immigration crisis, and then another headline just a few days later that outlines the very immigration crisis Trump was referring to.

This is fake news at its most blatant and insidious and goes hand-in-hand with another troubling headline that points out there are likely far more illegals living (and voting) in the United States than the government has been willing to tell us:


 

ANOTHER Congressional Race Just Went From A Republican Win To “Too Close To Call”

After the polls closed in California’s 39th congressional district Republican Young Kim was declared the winner by almost all media outlets given her lead of nearly 4000 votes. The victory was cited as a historical one given Kim would be the first Korean woman elected to the U.S. Congress. Ah, but then more ballots were discovered that inexplicably and overwhelmingly favored her Democrat opponent, Those ballots were processed and Kim’s lead was slashed from more than 4000 to just over 700 in a matter of a few days. 

Cisneros/Kim

(Democrat Gil Cisneros (L) is facing Republican Young Kim (R) in the open race in California’s 39th congressional district)

Via Business Insider:

On Tuesday, Republican candidate Young Kim saw her lead over Democrat Gil Cisneros narrow to just 711 votes from 1, 957 on Monday as the mail-in ballots counted after Election Day have leaned heavily in Cisneros’ favor. Kim, a former state assemblywoman aide to outgoing Rep. Ed Royce, led by nearly 4,000 votes when the polls closed on Nov. 6th.

After initially accusing the Cisneros campaign of being “rebuked” by the Los Angeles Registrar and County Clerk’s offices for alleged ballot tampering on Sunday, the Kim campaign took the allegations a step further after Cisneros gained more ground on Monday.

“The Gil Cisneros Campaign has been desperate to influence and alter the outcome of this race by harassing and intimidating vote counters in Orange County,” the campaign said Monday. “Those nefarious actions reflect a campaign…that will do anything in their desperate effort to change the results.”

They also asserted that Kim’s initial lead should be reflected in the results of the mail-in and provisional ballots, adding that “anything falling significantly outside of those percentages could reflect foul play.”

Accusations of voter fraud and disagreements over procedures for counting overseas and provisional ballots have been an issue in a number of 2018 midterm races, including the recounts of the gubernatorial and Senate races in Florida.


 

REPORT: The Far Left Shames White Women To Shut Up And Do As They’re Told

“White Shaming” is real, it is pervasive, and it is particularly aggressive at targeting white women into voting for candidates and policies the far left demands be forced upon everyone. It is a sad state of affairs when women are no longer being told they can be anything but that they must only be exactly what the far left tells them to be. It’s the 21st Century version of “SHUT UP AND GET BACK IN THE KITCHEN.”

Vote-Shaming is the New 'Get Back in the Kitchen'

Via Townhall:

We’ve seen it play out over every social media platform, with countless vitriolic comment threads of and bitter tweets insulting, accusing and shaming women who voted for Republican candidates:

“White women: footsoldiers of the patriarchy”
“…white women are brainwashed and willing participants in their own captivity”
“…educated white women are strong Dems… racism is a helluva drug”
“White women gonna white”

As the demographic numbers rolled in for various races across the country, liberal media pundits, celebrities, and many in the feminist movement took to social media to lambast women who didn’t choose to vote for Democrat candidates. Feigning moral superiority while stereotyping conservative women as racist and uneducated, controlled by their husbands and GOP men, they unleashed their hateful commentary to explain why their candidate failed to win the support of these voters.

Most of the vote-shamers cited only a few races of the thousands on which were voted last Tuesday–namely that of Stacey Abrams versus Brian Kemp in Georgia and Andrew Gillum versus Ron DeSantis in Florida.

Since exit polls in these two contests demonstrated that a higher percentage of white women voted for the Republican (who in these two particular races happened to be white) than the Democrat (who happened to be black), they reasoned that these white women were obviously racist and “unsisterly”.

…The vote-shaming phenomenon perhaps is best summed up by a headline that Vogue magazine posted on their Twitter account last week. Nestled between makeup tips and highlights of a recent underwear fashion show was an article titled:

“Will White Women Voters Ever Be Who We Want Them to Be?”

Welcome to 2018…where women are only equal as long as we are who “they” want us to be.

In other words, shut up and do what you are told.

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised. Publications like Vogue were never intended to empower women to make choices of her own. Their very existence revolves around telling a woman how she should be: what to wear, how to look, where to shop, who to emulate, and now… how to vote.

It is the dirty little (not so secret) secret of the liberal machine. One that declares any woman who doesn’t quickly and completely conform to liberal ideology to be a woman unworthy to try and think for herself. (Quite the contradiction, yes?) Hillary Clinton attacked white female voters after 2016, saying those who didn’t vote for her were weak and just doing what the men in their families told them to do.

Image result for Hillary Clinton slave master

The arrogance of such a comment is astonishing but also reveals why Mrs. Clinton remains so unpopular with so many. The (not so progressive) progressive line of thought is that most people really can’t think for themselves. They must be told what to do and what to think. It is the very same kind of thinking that supporters of slavery used during the 18th Century. It’s also the same type of viewpoint shared by Barack Obama in 2007 when he described millions of people who didn’t happen to agree with his politics as uneducated incompetents merely “clinging to their guns and religion.”

Then again, there’s not much difference between the slave owner mentality of the 1800’s and the Democrat Party mentality of 2018. Both demand masses of people to stay on the plantation, shut up, and to do what their masters tell them. The only question is if you’ll be among those who capitulate or those who continue to think for themselves.

The choice, for now, is yours.


 

ALERT: Federal prosecutors reviewing altered election documents tied to Florida Democrats

And this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg in what was and is the most blatant attempt to steal an election yet and most likely a practice run for what Democrats have planned in 2020…

Recount

Via Politico:

TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Department of State last week asked federal prosecutors to investigate dates that were changed on official state election documents, the first voting “irregularities” it has flagged in the wake of the 2018 elections.

The concerns, which the department says can be tied to the Florida Democratic Party, center around date changes on forms used to fix vote-by-mail ballots sent with incorrect or missing information. Known as “cure affidavits,” those documents used to fix mail ballots were due no later than 5 p.m. on Nov. 5 — the day before the election. But affidavits released on Tuesday by the DOS show that documents from four different counties said the ballots could be returned by 5 p.m. on Thursday, which is not accurate.

Audio of a Florida Democratic Party caller leaving a voicemail message asking a Palm Beach County voter to fix their vote by mail ballot after Election Day, which is not allowed, was also sent to POLITICO separately. It was not part of the information turned over to federal prosecutors.

Among the counties in question is Broward, which emerged as the epicenter of controversy as three statewide races and three local legislative races went into recounts following the Nov. 6 elections. Republicans have pointed to embattled Broward Elections chief Brenda Snipes’ record of past election gaffes in arguing that the largely Democratic country is tilted against them — perhaps fraudulently so.


 

BREAKING: Anti-Trump ‘Creepy Porn Lawyer’ Arrested For Domestic Abuse. Woman’s Face “Bruised and Swollen.”

The longtime liberal media darling, Michael Avenatti, is in some serious legal trouble of his own following his arrest for domestic violence.

Via TMZ:

MICHAEL AVENATTI
ARRESTED FOR FELONY DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Michael Avenatti, who became famous for representing Stormy Daniels in her battle with President Trump, has been arrested for felony domestic violence … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Our law enforcement sources say Avenatti was arrested Wednesday after a woman filed a felony DV report. We’re told her face was “swollen and bruised” with “red marks” on both cheeks.

Our sources say the alleged incident occurred Tuesday night, but there was another confrontation Wednesday between the two at an exclusive apartment building in the Century City area of L.A.

We’re told Wednesday afternoon the woman was on the sidewalk on her cellphone with sunglasses covering her eyes, sobbing and screaming on the phone, “I can’t believe you did this to me. I’m going to get a restraining order against you.”

We’re told security brought her inside the building, took her upstairs and Michael showed up 5 minutes later and ran into the building. He screamed repeatedly, “She hit me first.” We’re told he angrily added, “This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***.” We’re told he tried getting into the elevator but security denied him access.

Cops showed up and escorted Avenatti into a corner of the apartment lobby and spoke with him for 5 to 10 minutes and then took him into custody.

A law enforcement source says on Tuesday, Avenatti “kicked her out of the apartment” and that’s when the alleged domestic violence occurred. We’re told she went back to the apartment on Wednesday to retrieve her belongings and called police to stand by in case things got heated.

We’re told Avenatti is currently in custody.

BREAKING: Kevin McCarthy Beats Jim Jordan for House Leadership

Congressman Kevin McCarthy easily defeated a challenge from Congressman Jim Jordan for the position of House Minority Leader this afternoon. Jordan will likely be the ranking minority leader on the House Judiciary Committee, pitting him against Democrats intent on unleashing a mass of anti-Trump investigations.

The president’s relationship with McCarthy has been overwhelmingly positive over the course of the first two years of the Trump administration. It was McCarthy who often had to act as peacemaker between the president and outgoing House Speaker, Paul Ryan who remained an anti-Trumper—behind closed doors. It was also McCarthy who led the charge for passage of the Trump tax cuts, work which the president is said to have been very impressed by.

President Trump is also on very good terms with Congressman Jordan who has been a stalwart supporter of the president’s since 2016. If President Trump has called on both men to make a quick peace and get ready for what will likely be a contentious ongoing battle with the new Democrat House majority, it is likely that is exactly what will happen.


 

Congressman Matt Gaetz: Dems Using Florida Recounts as Test to See How They Can ‘Steal’ 2020 From Trump

Congressman Gaetz knows well the typical Florida election shenanigans that so often come out of Broward county. What was and is taking place before, during, and after, the 2018 Midterms is beyond anything he has witnessed before and he’s doing his best to warn Americans what that really means for 2020 and beyond.

Image result for matt gaetz

Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is alleging that Democrats in Florida are “stress testing the integrity” of the election system in an effort to build “a roadmap on how to steal” the 2020 race from President Donald Trump.

In a SiriusXM interview on Breitbart News Daily, Gaetz told Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow, “If the Democrats are able to learn now what techniques work and don’t work, [which] transparency laws are going to be followed and which ones aren’t, then it gives them a roadmap on how to steal the election from Donald Trump in 2020.”

Gaetz added: “The resistance movement has changed from yelling at town halls and yelling in restaurants to now, potentially, trying to steal elections that they can’t win at the ballot box.”

The Florida congressman, who won reelection in his district earlier this month by more than 30 percent, said that the most concerning element in all of this has been that since election day, more than 80,000 ballots “have just been like spoken into existence.”

“They weren’t acknowledged to even exist on election night, and then lo and behold, the Democrats needed more votes to close the gaps,” he said, “and more ballots continued to be found.”

DOJ Gives Matthew Whitaker Legal Approval To Serve As Acting Attorney General

Despite the all-too-predictable cries for ‘RECUSE!’ coming from Democrats, Matthew Whitaker was just given the legal green light from on high as the Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel released its opinion that Mr. Whitaker is a legally viable figure to serve as the acting AG per the Federal Vacancies Reform Act (VRA) of 1998.

Image result for Matt Whitaker is a beast

Whitaker is a beast of a man whose physical presence and no-nonsense stare are well known and respected throughout the Justice Department. He has made his concerns public in recent months regarding the ever-widening scope of the highly controversial Mueller probe which in turn has made him an enemy of Democrats who hope to continue using that probe to damage the Trump presidency.

Via Fox News:

Whitaker previously served as Sessions’ chief of staff at the Justice Department. The president requested Sessions’ resignation last week, just hours after the polls closed on Election Day. Sessions had been criticized by the president throughout his tenure at the Justice Department due to his decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation, due to his involvement with the Trump campaign in 2016.

Following Sessions’ recusal, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates in the 2016 presidential election.

But Whitaker’s new role would include oversight of the Russia investigation, along with the agency’s other federal investigations, including the New York prosecutors’ look into the finances of Trump and his former aides.

Democrats and eighteen state attorneys general have taken issue with Whitaker’s appointment, calling for him to recuse himself from overseeing the Russia probe, citing in part his “hostility” to the investigation given his past criticism in the media.

In an op-ed Whitaker wrote last year, he argued that “any investigation into President Trump’s finances or the finances of his family would require Mueller to return to Rod Rosenstein for additional authority under Mueller’s appointment as special counsel.”

“It is time for Rosenstein…to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation to the four corners of the order appointing him special counsel,” Whitaker wrote. “If he doesn’t, then Mueller’s investigation will eventually start to look like a political fishing expedition. This would not only be out of character for a respected figure like Mueller, but also could be damaging to the President of the United States and his family—and by extension, to the country.”

And separately, in July 2017, Whitaker told CNN, “I could see a scenario where Jeff Sessions is replaced with a recess appointment, and that attorney general doesn’t fire Bob Mueller, but he just reduces his budget to so low that his investigation grinds to almost a halt.”

Meanwhile, Whitaker made his first public appearance as acting attorney general on Wednesday in Iowa, his home state, and delivered remarks on “elder justice.”

Detroit Moving To Remove Ben Carson’s Name From City High School Named In His Honor?

The anti-Trump hatred among the elites continues to grow and grow across America. This time it is Ben Carson’s home city of Detroit where he was once applauded as an example of a poor child raised by a single mother who went on to become one of the most celebrated neurosurgeons in the world. A book deal followed, then a Hollywood film, and a high school named in Mr. Carson’s honor. Today, Detroit ‘leaders’ are moving to strip that high school of Ben Carson’s name for nothing more than Carson’s ongoing support of the Trump administration. 

Via Fox News:

The name of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson could be removed from a high school in his hometown of Detroit now that a state-appointed emergency manager no longer oversees the city’s Board of Education, according to reports.

The board voted 6-1 Tuesday to begin soliciting public opinion on whether the name of the Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine – as well as some other schools in the district – should be changed.

The Carson school was named for the former neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate before he became a member of President Trump’s Cabinet, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Board member LaMar Lemmons told the Detroit News that those now backing a name change “don’t support the (Trump) administration.”

————–

It’s liberal moral dyslexia at its worst. During the Obama years, black unemployment in America skyrocketed. Black families lost jobs, lost their homes, and lost hope. Less than two years into the Trump presidency and Black unemployment is at record lows, new Black-owned business startups are at record highs. Jobs, homes, and hope are returning to Black communities all across America and yet these city ‘leaders’ claim to not support the Trump administration and wish to punish a kind and brilliant man like Dr. Ben Carson, one of their own who succeeded despite overwhelming societal obstacles. What they are doing is akin to strapping him to a tree and lashing his back for daring to leave the Democrat plantation.

Appalling.

Illegals Climb Decrepit Border Fence Into America – Where Is Trump? (UPDATE)

UPDATE: Border officials added razor wire to the top and bottom of the fence at the Border State Park that divides San Diego from Tijuana, Mexico overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning, according to Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman Katie Waldman. She released a few photos showing the newly added protective measure. (It appears the Trump administration acted quickly to halt the illegal advances over the fence, though, it is certain more such attempts will be made soon up and down the southern border. But for now – WELL DONE PRESIDENT TRUMP!)

Original Story:

Disheartening video shows masses of illegal immigrants climbing the decrepit border fence that separates California and Mexico. Reports indicate at least some of those crossing into the United States were part of the now infamous ‘human caravan’ from Central America. They also appear to be almost exclusively young and male, a stark contrast to the Establishment Media reports of women and children that are so often shown on television.

Via Fox 5 San Diego:

The U.S. Border Patrol sent a news release stating it believes some of the people at the fence are from the caravan that’s been traveling through Mexico from Honduras.

One man who happened to be on the north side of the border while visiting the area described being entertained by the gathering.

“I was very surprised how many people are here and how many different officials are here, it seems like there’s something going on it’s not normal to have this many resources tied up all these vehicles saw armored car coming down the road it just seemed more than just an average day,” said Greg Boldner.

——————

Social media response to the above footage has been contrasted by applause from the far left and anger from those wanting safe and secure U.S. borders. Some are going so far as to wonder publicly how President Trump’s tough talk on illegal immigration appears to be falling far short of reality as thousands of illegals continue to pour into the United States every week—many of which are believed to be voting in our elections.

Rush Limbaugh Explains In Very Clear Detail Why America Needs To Secure Its Border And Its Elections

Voter fraud is real, it is happening, and by allowing it to continue, it is violating the sanctity of the “one citizen one vote” rule that has long kept this nation intact. As stories of vote count irregularities multiply at levels never before seen, more and more rightly fear 2018 was merely a warmup for even more rampant voter theft come 2020. 

Even Texas is on the brink as tens of thousands of illegals pour into that state’s southern border every month as local Democrat party machines then work to ensure they are able to vote. Texas nearly went blue in 2018. Democrats are more determined now than ever to do whatever it takes to make that happen in 2020 and if they do, a Republican will never win another national election in this country again. Texas has long been the electoral guardian at the gate. That gate is now under attack like never before and on the brink of cracking open. God help us if it does. Russia was nowhere close to ‘stealing’ any U.S. election. The far greater threat has always been illegal vote rigging.


 

REPORT: Hey, Republicans, If You Want To Win Elections In 2020 You Better Embrace Trump Now

The results of 2018 made it clear that if Republicans want to win elections they need to make sure to do at least one thing right—support/embrace President Trump and his America First Agenda.

Via The Daily Caller:

It is well-documented that both political parties in Congress have figured out how to use the levers of power — to stay in power. Congressional leaders, especially those in the majority, use their positions to raise millions of dollars in campaign contributions. Given that money usually equates to campaign success for the majority, one must work pretty hard to lose control of the House of Representatives. But it can be done, as Democrats demonstrated in 1994, Republicans in 2006, Democrats in 2010, and Republicans again in 2018.

As a political scientist and former congressman, I understand that it’s difficult to know exactly why voters reject any candidate. However, flipping the House is pretty simple to explain. In fact, both Speakers Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) offered the same answer: hyper-localize your race — that is, ignore national issues and focus like a laser on local issues. Unfortunately for Republicans, the advice only works Democrats.

Don’t agree with me? Ask Senators-elect Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), and Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.). President Trump and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) successfully nationalized multiple Senate races, with the help provided by radical leftist opposition to Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Senate (and a few House) candidates who joined in the nationalization effort were rewarded and won.

Back to the House. The speaker and his affiliated PACs spent months running away from national issues. As a result, the one big achievement of the Ryan speakership — historic tax reform — was ignored by most voters, and the ancillary strong economy didn’t translate into strong support for House Republicans. Instead, the man who most successfully seized credit for a booming economy was the same man that establishment Republicans and consultants counseled candidates to avoid: President Donald Trump. (Note: this was the very same strategy implemented by House Republicans back in 2016, and despite their very best efforts to shun Trump, voters rewarded them anyway with his massive coattails. Trust me: I was in on these very discussions.)

Image result for Paul Ryan scumbag

With this Republican unwillingness to team up with Trump and his economy, voters struggled to recall anything positive delivered by the House majority. All they could remember were failed promises. For instance, after eight years of campaign pledges, congressional Republicans kept ObamaCare — despite all of its many failures. And instead of balancing the budget, Republicans passed the biggest budget in history. With no national vision by Republican leaders, combined with the dramatic failures to deliver and no Democrats to blame, no amount of hyper-localizing their races by talking about opioids, open spaces, or over-regulation could save dozens of Republican candidates.

However, for Democrats, hyper-localizing is political heaven. If you look back at the two recent times Democrats were kicked out of the House majority, it was after they openly admitted their grandiose visions for big government — first with Clinton and then with Obama. In both 1994 and 2010, voters rose up and said enough is enough. In other years, Democrats slowly and methodically plodded along their progressive path without riling up the too much opposition, and they were rewarded with seemingly permanent majorities. But when you nationalize healthcare or pass a trillion-dollar stimulus, that simply reveals too much of the Democrat agenda for a lot of voters.

So, nationalizing is good for Republicans, but it’s bad for Democrats. Hyper-localizing is good for Democrats, but it’s horrible for Republicans. Where does this leave House Republicans for the next two years?

First, 2018 isn’t over yet. There are ample lame-duck opportunities for Republicans to begin reestablishing trust with their voters by making a down payment on Trump’s wall, supporting Trump’s executive rollback of Obamacare, cutting government spending, and approving dozens of Trump appointees. They even have a chance to tackle entitlement spending before Paul Ryan retires, by including food stamp work requirements in the Farm Bill.

Second, whether lame-duck Republicans keep their word or not, the incoming House minority has one path back to the majority: Defend President Trump, the conservative agenda, and the strong economy from the socialist wing of the Democratic Party. There will be Democratic investigation after investigation, congressional letters infinitum, and subpoenas galore. But by standing with the president, his appointees, and his voter base, House Republicans will help nationalize the election and likely be rewarded with a majority in 2021. A House Democrat majority and a loud socialist Senate minority can play havoc with Republicans for two years, but President Trump has his own pen and phone.

Last, a note of warning to Washington, D.C. Republicans and the center-right movement: Beware of Google and the social media giants of YouTube, Facebook, Twitter. They have the means, motive, and opportunity to ensure this nationalization strategy fails. As the most powerful sector of the economy, these corporate giants have the means to influence elections — certainly more than a few Russian bots! Leaked videos reveal massive anti-Trump, pro-socialism groupthink, proving they have the motive. And with their nearly complete monopoly of the most impactful medium in the modern world, no one can argue that they don’t have the opportunity.

The next two years could help shape the future of the country — and, indeed, the world — for years to come. Republicans can’t afford to ignore the lessons of 2018.

———————-

President Trump amassed an impressive list of 2018 Midterm victories for those candidates he supported. He also focused on the Senate more than the House. The results appear to compliment that fact and the reality that the ‘Trump effect’ is real and for Republicans greatly improves a candidate’s chances of winning. 


 

CNN’s Acosta vs Trump White House Lawsuit Reads Like It Was Written In Crayon

CNN, apparently not satisfied with merely having nearly cornered the market on fake news, is going for the most incompetent news network as well. Most have likely heard about its attempt to sue the Trump White House (and a Secret Service agent—stay classy, CNN) for having revoked bratty correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass. Funny thing is, that lawsuit is now exposing CNN for how little it actually knows about anything—including the U.S. Constitution, the truth, and basic good manners.

Image result for Jim Acosta temper tantrum

Via The Daily Caller:

CNN and Jim Acosta’s lawsuit against the White House, which alleges First and Fifth Amendment violations, contains several factual inaccuracies.

CNN announced Tuesday morning that it was filing suit against the White House for revoking Chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s hard press pass.

The White House took Acosta’s pass last week after a contentious exchange with President Donald Trump during a post-midterm press conference. When a White House intern tried to pass the microphone to the next reporter, Acosta physically prevented the intern from taking the microphone.

In the official lawsuit, CNN makes several errors in its recounting of the events of the press conference that led to the revocation of Acosta’s pass.

Related image

1. Mischaracterizes Acosta’s Questioning

In point 33 of the lawsuit, CNN claimed that Acosta started his exchange with “a question about one of President Trump’s statements during the midterm campaign — namely, whether a caravan making its way to the United States from Central America constitutes ‘an invasion’ of the country.”

Video of Acosta’s line of questioning showed that he first promised to “challenge” the president and gave his own opinion that it is incorrect to characterize the caravan as an invasion. He finally asked why Trump called the caravan an invasion.

CNN also claimed that the president “declined to respond” in this point — except Trump responded to Acosta by explaining that they both have a “difference of opinion” on how to characterize the caravan. The president also denied that he “demonized immigrants,” per a second question from Acosta, explaining that there is real video of caravan members forcing their way through Mexico’s border.

Acosta asked the president two distinct questions — as is standard for reporters — and had several follow-ups, essentially creating a debate between himself and the president. The CNN reporter demanded yet another question when the intern came to take the microphone from him.

2. Claims All Reporters Used The Mic To Ask Questions

In the aforementioned part of the lawsuit, CNN insisted that Acosta was “speaking through a hand-held microphone, as did all of the White House journalists who asked questions.”

However, CNN analyst April Ryan shouted questions at the president later in the press conference despite not having a microphone. In fact, Ryan’s questions interrupted The Daily Caller’s Saagar Enjeti — who had a microphone at the time and was called on by the president.

3. Ignores Acosta’s Repeated Interruptions

CNN noted in its lawsuit that after Acosta’s debate with the president, Trump called on NBC’s Peter Alexander. CNN, however, blamed the president for returning “to his criticisms of CNN seconds later” without noting that the president was responding to Acosta’s own repeated interruptions.

Despite Alexander having the microphone and attempting to ask the president a question, Acosta again stood up from his seat and tried to battle the president on his “enemy of the people” line.

That was when Trump responded by labeling Acosta the “enemy of the people.”

4. Refuses To Acknowledge Acosta Physically Prevented Intern From Taking Mic

CNN skirts around the scuffle between Acosta and the intern who was tasked with managing the microphone by obfuscating the fact that Acosta used his arm to prevent the intern from taking the microphone, as her job entails.

In two different references, CNN says “Acosta’s arm appears to move only as a response to a tussle for the microphone” and that “Acosta was only attempting to hold onto the microphone as the staffer tried to grab it from him.”

The unaltered video does show, however, that Acosta clearly used his left arm to physically block the intern.

5. Inaccurately Suggests A Named Reporter Was At The Press Conference

CNN claimed in point 40 that The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Chuck Ross, who disputed the White House’s claim that Acosta “place[d] his hands” on the intern, was present at the press conference in question.

“Members of the media who attended the press conference and saw the encounter disputed Press Secretary Sanders’s characterization of the account,” the lawsuit claimed before citing a tweet by Ross.

Ross was not, in fact, present at the press conference and does not even report from Washington, DC.

“I was not at the presidential press conference as CNN suggests in its lawsuit,” Ross said in a statement to The Daily Caller. “I stand by my tweet, though I regret that CNN is ignoring the dozens of other tweets I’ve posted criticizing the network for its biased coverage and refusal to provide transparency on its false reports regarding Donald Trump Jr. and other topics.”

————–

CNN has once again exposed itself as a parody of a news network and not a real one concerned with the truth and/or facts. Everything is biased opinion represented by the comically petulant Jim Acosta.

Trump planning shakeup, eyeing new chief of staff and DHS secretary: Sources

President Donald Trump is considering yet another shakeup of his administration, preparing to remove Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and looking at possible replacements for Chief of Staff John Kelly, including Vice President Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff Nick Ayers, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.

Nielsen, who became secretary at Homeland Security when John Kelly left DHS to become Trump’s chief of staff, is expected to leave her role in the coming weeks and could be asked to resign, according to sources. However, Kelly is fighting to delay her departure, the sources said.

“The Secretary is honored to lead the men and women of DHS and is committed to implementing the President’s security-focused agenda to protect Americans from all threats and will continue to do so,” DHS spokesperson Tyler Houlton said in a statement Tuesday.

The Washington Post first reported the news of Nielsen’s potential departure. The White House did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment about the potential changes.

Meanwhile, Kelly’s job is also uncertain and his fate has been in question for some time. Sources tell ABC News that within the last few weeks, the president has once again discussed Kelly’s fate with many of his top advisers; Kelly has continued to grow distant with the president, sources said.

…Trump has previously wanted to fire Nielsen, but Kelly would frequently jump in and threaten to resign — his threats delaying the move, sources have told ABC. They say there were times during the administration where Kelly and Nielsen even discussed leaving the administration together.

The president has said privately for months he doesn’t believe that Nielsen is doing enough to enforce stricter immigration policies.

Just last month, there was a highly contentious confrontation between Kelly and National Security Adviser John Bolton over increased border crossings. Sources tell ABC News the fight had to do specifically with Nielsen’s job performance.

“There’s no love lost between either of them,” a senior administration official tells ABC News referring to Nielsen and Trump. “All that has kept Nielsen on was not her loyalty to the president but desire to protect the department from his whims and to let her people do their jobs.”

What goes unsaid in the ABC report is the president’s eye on the new Democrat-controlled Congress. He is hoping to be able to work with Democrats on issues centered around trade, infrastructure, and lowering the cost of healthcare. To do so he knows he’ll need a White House staff that can conduct itself with laser-like focus. As such, those not totally loyal to the cause are to be removed and replaced.

President Trump has a far better understanding of the D.C. Swamp than he did two years earlier and remains confident he can continue to deliver on the promises he made to the American people—Democrats, the media, and never-Trump Republicans, be damned.


 

Why Democrats Hate America – And You

Democrats and their Establishment Media cohorts have been unhinged since losing the 2016 Election and continue to push the country down a path of highly divisive self-destruction that will most likely not end well.

Via The Spectator:

They couldn’t care less that they’re now officially what they’ve claimed to see in Donald Trump.

For two years, the Democratic Party has insisted that the American people must follow their lead and #Resist President Donald J. Trump at all costs. The Left has argued that Trump is unlike any leader that we’ve had in American history. According to the DNC, Trump’s presidency is more than just an inconvenience to their partisan agenda. Instead, it is a threat to America’s sacred democratic institutions.

You see, Trump is Hitler in their eyes (never mind that the Left has insinuated every Republican president was Hitler going back to at least Richard M. Nixon). According to the Left, Trump is the embodiment of neo-fascism who seeks to tear down our grand, egalitarian society and replace it with a stilted cult of personality.

What evidence does the Left proffer in defense of these outlandish claims?

They say that Trump loves autocrats, like Russia’s Vladimir Putin or North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. Of course, the evidence proves the contrary: Trump has been tougher on Russia than his predecessor and Trump threatened nuclear war against Kim Jong-un, which prompted the young North Korean dictator to — however briefly — come to his senses and seek a peaceful accommodation with the West.

The Left argues that Trump is out to kill NATO. In actuality, though, Trump’s tough love toward NATO has been exactly that: his actions have sent a much-needed jolt to the otherwise fraying alliance. Because of him, NATO members are starting to fully pitch in ways they’ve not done since the heady days of the Cold War.

Back in the United States, the Left decries the hated Orange Man in the White House as an autocrat-in-waiting by using his firing of a cadre of senior FBI and DOJ officials as proof-positive that Trump is both a Russian agent of influence, as well as a usurper to America’s democratic heritage. They believe that Trump is eviscerating the hallowed independence of the Department of Justice because he is seeking to prevent “the truth” of his duplicity in the 2016 election from getting out. All of this, of course, is easily proven to be false (never mind that the DOJ is not an independent branch of the government; it’s part of the Executive Branch which the president leads!).

In fact, Trump has spent the last two years having the legitimacy of his unprecedented election to the presidency challenged by unelected and unaccountable members of the U.S. intelligence community — all of whom have partisan axes to grind against Trump. The president fired FBI Director James Comey; he helped to remove senior FBI officials, like Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and Lisa Page; Trump revoked the security clearances of former officials, like John Brennan, not because he was hiding something from the world. Rather, Trump took these actions as a means of self-defense against former Obama officials masquerading as unbiased intelligence officers.

Fact is, the intelligence community — like the rest of the federal government — was weaponized by former President Barack Obama and used to punish political enemies of the Democratic Party.

From there, the Left whines about the eradication of the First Amendment in the form of President Trump’s attacks on the press. Yet, this is hardly unprecedented in the history of presidential relations with the press (the election of 1800 is a great example). Further, the major news networks are employing a disproportionate number of former senior Democratic Party operatives and policy wonks as “objective” news reporters and analysts.

Lastly, we have been told since 2016 that Trump disrespected America’s tradition of free-and-fair elections. Although, it has been the Left that has so categorically rejected the results of a free-and-fair election — 2016 — that they are now desperately struggling to steal critical elections in Florida and Arizona. The most hallowed institution in the country — its electoral system — is flagrantly being violated by leftist partisans who simply fail to accept that they have lost the 2018 midterms in both Florida and Arizona.

So, which is the party that fundamentally hates the United States again? Because it sounds like it’s the Democrats who really hate America (and you).


 

It Happened In New Mexico Too – Republican Wins Then Loses Congressional Seat After More Votes “Found”

As many others have said already, it sure feels like Democrats are using the 2018 Midterms to see how far they can push election theft come 2020.

New Mexico’s District 2 has been a Republican stronghold for many years. In 2016 the Republican won the congressional seat over his Democrat opponent by more than 20 points. Donald Trump carried it by ten points.

Inexplicably in 2018, the Democrat candidate won due to an unusually large Democrat voter turnout on the southern portion of the district, most notably the Las Cruces area where the Democrat candidate led her Republican counterpart by nearly 30%. It seems some 1300 more Democrat votes were cast in the Las Cruces area in 2018 than the 2016 General Election, a larger than normal off-year election vote tally that is mirrored in neighboring border counties that went overwhelmingly for the Democrat. Throughout District 2 it appears Republican voter turnout was down while Democrat voter turnout was up – way up. So far up, in fact, to change a historically Republican stronghold to Democrat.

The District 2 Republican candidate, Yvette Herrell, is said to be considering an election tampering lawsuit. Her Democrat opponent and the Establishment Media have declared her Democrat opponent, Xochitl Torres Small, the clear winner.

What took place in New Mexico is remarkably similar to the odd voting patterns that also happened in Arizona where border county voter turnout was both remarkably high and overwhelmingly Democrat leading many to wonder how many of those votes were in fact cast by non-citizens.


 

Did You Know Only 7 Out Of 50 States Require Photo ID To Vote?

It’s true. Just seven states out of fifty require people prove they are who they say they are when voting. Those seven states are Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin. Want to guess how many of those states Donald Trump won in 2016? SIX OUT OF SEVEN. The one (narrow)loss came in Virginia, a true swing state.

One has to wonder why Democrats are so opposed to voter ID laws. Don’t they want true and legitimate elections? Don’t they want to prevent rampant voter fraud? 

Hmmmm…

(Note: some individual counties require voter ID – Broward County in Florida is not among them.)

How John McCain’s No Vote To Repeal & Replace Obamacare Helped Dems Win House In 2018

For years Republicans (including John McCain) raised a lot of cash on their promise to get rid of Obamacare. Then, when Donald Trump shocked the political world and won the White House, they were in a position to actually keep that promise to voters. Instead, then-Senator McCain (along with Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski) voted no on repeal and yes on keeping Obamacare fully intact. One outgoing member of Congress now thinks that is when Republicans’ hopes for keeping the House in 2018 were doomed to fail and that McCain’s no vote had nothing to do with doing what was right for Arizona voters but rather was meant to feed McCain’s desire to rebuke President Trump.

Via Politico:

An outgoing Republican lawmaker on Sunday blamed former Sen. John McCain for the GOP’s loss of the House majority in last week’s elections, writing in The Wall Street Journal that it was McCain’s decisive vote against legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare that led to a wave of Democratic midterm victories.

Jason Lewis, a Minnesota congressman who was unseated last Tuesday by Democrat Angie Craig, claimed in his op-ed that McCain’s thumbs-down vote against a so-called skinny repeal of the Affordable Care Act “prompted a ‘green wave’ of liberal special-interest money” that he said allowed Democrats to hammer Republicans on the issue of pre-existing conditions.

Lewis wrote in his op-ed that the failed Senate vote allowed Democrats to campaign against Republicans with the claim that the GOP wanted to remove protections for those with pre-existing conditions, a keystone of many Democratic campaigns leading up to the midterms.

The freshman congressman argued that the House bill would have “[alleviated] the pre-existing condition problem,” rather than getting rid of the protections altogether as he accused Democrats of falsely claiming. PolitFact has rated claims that the House bill wouldn’t eliminate protections for pre-existing conditions as “mostly false.”

Although McCain was one of three GOP lawmakers to vote against the “skinny” repeal, Lewis singled out McCain for his “no” vote — which came after he criticized Republicans for trying to push a repeal bill through and called for the return of regular order — as an unnecessary attempt to slight President Donald Trump.

“The late Arizona senator’s grievance with all things Trump was well known, but this obsession on the part of ‘Never Trump’ Republicans has to end,” Lewis wrote. “Disapprove of the president’s style if you like, but don’t sacrifice sound policy to pettiness.”

—————

The above sentiment by Congressman Jason Lewis is true. John McCain was very much a willing part of the “we (Republicans) are willing to lose 2018 if it means hurting Trump” sentiment. Well, they got what they wanted. Democrats took the House, (while still attempting to steal the Senate) and President Trump’s America First agenda is now facing even greater political opposition from the globalist, America Last, D.C. Swamp. John McCain is gone but the political corruption he helped expand from one coast of America to the other, very much remains.
